    What are your friends using?

    Telegram, Line, WeChat, & Signal I've seen people using those... but Android versions. And some require an older version.

    1st Pick one that others use, then search here for info on it.

    Pretty much just for my wife and myself. I don't know of a single app that most people use, except facebook messenger, which I won't be using. I pretty much just text everyone else. I downloaded telegram from apkpure today. It demands pretty much every permission possible plus your phone number. But on my wife's Motion I can turn permissions off. I'll give it a go. What I want is the feature of seeing whether or not your message has been received and read by the recipient. I know whatsapp does that, but I'm trying to steer clear of FB products. Thanks for the feedback.

    I am daily using Telegram on B10....you can install any version.... I would not install Telegram X....or you can give it a try. Telegram works pretty well and consumes less battery than WA. Just download any apk version....

    KIK.com has a feel like BBM. It was started by Canadians from Waterloo. They got into a tussle with Chen over claims it used patents of BBM and were bannished from BlackBerry. But later settled out of court.

    Will try Kik next. Curious if it will work with Hub. I've tried putting Telegram on both the Passport and Motion. Not thrilled. No control over permissions with the android version on bb10. First thing it did was mine my contacts and suggest contacting people. No hub integration and very limited options with notifications. Even on the motion, where permissions can be shut off it nags for access every time you open the app. Will keep looking. I've never used Skype. Didn't know it had mobile IM.

    KIK and BB lawsuit was before Chen.

    Have not tried the video, but voice is reliable and clear. Notifications work correctly. File sharing cross platform also works fully.

    It's a novelty, but I wonder how many would actually buy one.
    Has anyome mentioned Signal? It's very lean like Telegram.

    Use Threema, it is the best. For BlackBerry 10 take the version from the Amazon App Store. Read the "Help" inside the app !

    Yeah i'd use Skype. It works pretty much everywhere, even on desktop. On BB10, voice and video calls work to other devices.

    nearly everyone is in WhatsApp sadly. few on Telegram (which is a great messenger). just me and wife on BBM.

    I want to get off Zuckerberg app such as fb and ig, which work. pretty no usage of filthy social media which has become more of a freak show.

    but everyone is on WhatsApp to commute. very sad

    wu-wei has done a wonderful thing here: he has mapped the most frequently used BBM emoji into full versions of Telegram and its sister app, Telegram Plus.

    His 2 updates, called respectively TeleBBM and PlusBBM, are each the full version of the stock app, the only difference being the substitution of the BBM emoji over the Android ones.

    I'm using PlusBBM on my Classic, and it runs beautifully on a BB10 device. Highly recommended!
